turn violent here in cairo and other cities. buildings torched. police cars torched. a lot of tear gas and pepper spray in the shutdowns between protestors and security forces. and morsi and the top justices. many chief justices here in cairo and across the country they will no longer to go work until the president repeals his decrease for a power grab. we're seen what could be a show down on the streets. that is when supporters on tuesday and saying that he is trying to be a dictator will face off. both opponents and supporters of the president hauling out people and major marches expected on tuesday. >> heather: steve, thank you. >> gregg: contest in the background on egypt's president morsi. he was elected in june of this year after a revolution overthrowing president hosni mubarak. he is head 6 muslim brotherhood. he is the first freely elected president and first islamist to be head of an arab state. they accuse him of trying to monopolize powers, the courts and media and parliament and in the end, sharia law, imposing strict islamic principles. >> heather: it raises new questions
to his world view, whether it's in the middle east, the cairo speech, about china, russia, things like that. this was another one, i think, in that line of speeches, people really want ed to understand th obama doctrine if they read all of these speeches together almost in a little book form they would get a better understanding of the president's world view. i would assume a lot of people already believe they have that understanding. he's off to cambodia and then it's back home because he has to pardon that turkey. i'll see you soon. >> thanks, chuck. even across the world in asia, the president can't escape washington. at a buddhist monastery he joked that geshgs 0s on the fiscal cliff may require a little help in the almighty. >> yes, we're working on this budget. we're going to need a lot of prayer. >> also on the president's plate a developing fight over who removed language and talking points given to susan rights that suggested al qaeda may have been behind the terrorist attack in libya? >> it went to the so-called deputy's committee that's populated by appointees from the admin
transpired hours before in cairo. almost a copycat of the demonstrations at our facility in cairo. >> at his news conference, a visibly angry obama fired back. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and to besmirch her representation is outrageous. >> well, mccain didn't want to have the president to have the last word. and he raced to the senate floor to then respond to the president. >> this president and this administration has either been guilty of colossal incompetence, or engaged in a cover-up. if the president thinks that we are picking on people, he really does not have any idea of how serious this issue is. we're not picking on anybody. >> well, on "today" show this morning, mccain was challenged on how ambassador susan rice's situation is somehow different from another rice. mccain supported, despite intelligence failures in bad intelligence that then condol
option would be a ground invasion, tamron. >> martin, thank you very much. in cairo today thousands gather to protest the gaza air strikes demanding that the egyptian government cut ties with israel. that's a development in the region. let's bring in "time" magazine international editor jim frederick. you heard the reports with me. martin fletcher indicating that perhaps not even net uh-hy neta anyone knows what the next phase will be? >> the next 48 hours are critical because the deputy foreign minister basically threatened hamas. you might have a ground offensive. the very important thing to keep our eye on over the next 48 hours is that yippian president morsi is meeting with the prime minister from turkey. they're meeting in cairo. these are two crucial countries. on one hand you have -- they're both large populations. historic allally they're wester friendly. they're anchors between israel and their neighbors. he's probably the most distinguished and elder statementsmen in the region, and morsi is new and democratically elected and trying to make his mark as a statesman himself
-- that anti-islamic video that sparked the riots in cairo. that's the confusion, that film or a terrorist attack? they got 20 intelligence reports blaming the film riot in cairo. but, this is critical, those reports were disproved over time. but disproved after petraeus made his initial presentation to congress. so david petraeus believes there's a lot of confusion and a lot of misrepresentation of what he originally told congress when he briefed them initially after the attacks. he wants to go up there tomorrow, sort it all out. he will also say he had his own talking points separate from u.n. ambassador susan rice. that came from somewhere other in the administration than his direct talking point. so he wants to get all this sorted out. he believes it was the al qaeda sympathizer group ansar al sharia that was responsible for the attacks. >> so the question, barbara, is he is convinced that the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi had nothing, nothing to do with that anti-muslim video that'd been posted on youtube, that this was a terrorist attack by this al qaeda affiliated organiz
to the peace negotiations going on, inside of cairo, to either have a cease-fire treaty signed sometime in the next 24 hours or there will be tanks rolling across these fields, into gaza. chris, back to you. >> chris: leland vittert reporting live from the israel-gaza border. thanks for that. joining us now, two leading senators on national security issues. saxby chambliss, vice chair of the intelligence committee an joe lieberman, head of the homeland security committee. senators, before we get to the benghazi investigation i want to ask you both about the growing conflict between israel and the palestinians in gaza. senator lieberman, while israel clearly has to be able to defend itself, do you worry about a ground war in gaza, especially, in the changing post-arab spring middle east? >> well, obviously it is in the first instance to hamas, i don't think the israelis really want a ground war. they'll go into gaza if they feel they need to, to eliminate the remainder of the missiles, and a lot of which are supplied to hamas by iran, that have been coming over to israel, hundreds of the
in cairo involved in peace talks and they are trying to bring about a cease-fire. chris, back to you in washington. >> he is reporting live from the israel-gaza border. thanks for that. >>> joining me now, two leading senators on national security issues. the advice chair of the intelligence committee and joe leiberman, head of the homeland security committee. before we get to the benghazi investigation, i want to ask you both about the growing conflict between the israel's and gaza. do you worry about a ground war in gaza, especially in this changing post arab spring middle east? >> ultimately obviously in the first instance to hamas, i don't think the israelis really want a ground war. they are only going to go into gaza if they feel they need to to eliminate the remainder of the missiles, a lot of them supplied by iran of that been coming over to israel. hundreds of them this year. so really the decision is up to hamas as to whether there will be a ground invasion of gaza or not. remember what hamas is. it's not the palestinian authority, which is recognized the right of israel to
the mobilization of 75,000 army reservists. joining us now is nbc live from gaza. as peace talks continue in cairo, israel is demanding that hamas stop firing rockets across the border. is there a willingness to do this or has the number of civilian casualties made a cease-fire now much less likely? >> well, you know, the fact that the negotiations are ongoing is an indication that palestinian factions can abide by the truce. in fact, in the past it's been on multiple occasions documented that palestinian factions have been committed to the truce until there's been some kind of violation, if you will, from the israeli side that israel justifies as an act in its own security. nonetheless, palestinian factions say they have abided by it in the past, they would abide by it again in the future if there is one in place. the question is can they get to that agreement in the next couple hours before time runs out. and the question really surrounding the truce have to deal with the cessation of hostilities. israel wants an immediate cessation of hostilities. then enter into negotiations about lifting a fi
about our embassy in cairo egypt. local tv host had played this clip incessantly and raging muslims -- enraging muslims throughout egypt who stormed our embassy and tore down the american flag and put up an islamist flag. a few hours later the -- they said it was over the video even though the next day the president referred to it as an act of terror. four americans were killed including our ambassador. ever since then, our republican friends have been using this terror attack, i'm sorry did i say using? i meant exploiting this terror attack to smear the president in any way they can. as you know, in 9-11-01 a terror attack is a reason to unite and cheer a president and in 9-11-12, it is an excuse to smear a president. there have been rumors of course that the president might be nominating susan rice, our u.n. ambassador to be his next secretary of state. and the most unlikely love couple of all in d.c., john mccain and lindsey graham got together to -- well, to say a lot of ignorant stuff. let's begin with j
egypt might go in all of this? >> i think egypt, look, it's quarter to a third of the arab world. cairo is one of the historical centers of the arab world. we don't have a good reading on where these guys are going, the muslim brotherhood. i'm not sure they necessarily do. we don't know how much to take literally what they say and write. they've got their internal politics, the party, the government. there's issues between them and other forces in egypt. they came into government fairly narrowly. but they're clearly trying to deepen their base. so everyone's watching really closely what they're doing with the rewriting of egypt's constitution, how these people want to consolidate power. what they say in the middle east, it's one thing to win an election. that's the easy part. are they willing to lose an election, to set up a political dynamic where there's a level playing field? i don't think we know the answer. >> whenever we're talking israel and hamas, you have to think about iran and its role. some of the long-range missile sites they bombed yesterday in those 50 strikes had bombs s
referred to demonstrations in benghazi growing out of what happened in cairo with the movie. how was the cia, how are our intelligence agencies so incredibly wrong about this? i mean it was not just rice. regarding her confirmation, i can tell you that she probably almost certainly wins confirmation if the white house goes forward with this, and the white house is signaling clearly that that is where the president is heading right now. whether or not he goes through it or not, but democrats, i'd be interested to hear what you say about this, but what i'm hearing democrats from the senate, don't necessarily want this fight right now because it will be three weeks of battles over the rice nomination focusing on benghazi because it will be filibustered. not all republicans will go along with its. the filibuster will not be successful but this will be a bat many that lasts three weeks. >> martha, secretary -- ambassador rice communicated what she had been given to communicate by the intelligence community. senator mccain and senator graham's beef is with the intelligence community, n
, and ten to cairo. >> reporter: even if there is a cease-fire in the hours ahead nobody in the region or at the white house thinks it is a guarantee the cease-fire will hold. this escalating violence over shadowing the president's trip to asia, that's as you note he dispatched secretary of state hillary clinton. she is expected to land in the next few hours. the bottom line is ben rosa top counsel security aid in the white house troflg with th traveling with the president today said there was a clear goal in mind. >> this will under take the engagement with leaders in the region to support deescalation of the violence and a durable outcome that ends the rocket attack in israeli cities and restores broader calm in the region. >> reporter: it's long known the secretary will be stepping down, that's been her plan all along. this was supposed to be her last trip with president obama overseas, a grueling trip to asia now has been extended by a couple of days as she goes to the mideast very quickly working right down to the wire to try and help solve this situation, jon. jon: obviously, eve
, who they thought might be responsible and whether or not that whole situation? cairo at the time about the demonstration over an anti-islamic film may have played a role. you had a very murky situation, john. >> barbara starr at the pentagon this morning. thanks very much. >>> 11 minutes past the hour. coming up, how the president will pay personal attention to the victims of sandy. that's scheduled to happen just hours from now. nt is hard, try running four. fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back into our business. this is the only thing we've ever wanted to do and ink helps us do it. make your mark with ink from chase. on gasoline. i am probably going to the gas station about once a month. last time i was at a gas station was about...i would say... two months ago. i very rarely put gas in my chevy volt. i go to the gas station such a small amount that i forget how to put gas in my car. [ male announcer ] and it's not just these owners giving the volt high praise. volt rece
there are cease-fire negotiations going on inside cairo and today the prime minister says the israeli army is ready for the escalation, the only thing that would mean a ground war and came at 24 hours notice to put a cease-fire deal on the table or tanks will be headed across these fields. >> dave: say staff, my friend. it's complicated by the fact that turkey, tunisia, u.s. allies, democratic governments appear early side hamas. >> ainsley: can't take living here in america for granted. can you imagine that, hearing the sirens and hunker down and find a rock. >> clayton: all tw take would be one rocket. and let's check the weather and rick reichmuth is looking at the forecast, headed into the big travel week. >> rick: everybody wants to know whether they can get home. what the weather looks like, look at the sunny icons there, that's good. temps not bad. plenty of sunshine, no big storms or wind that's going to impede air travel. across the west, a bit of a different story, and across area of the northwest and northern california where we'll see some rain and some showers, it's not going
